2 Problems and Challenges Today, humanity uses the equivalent of 1.7 planets to provide the natural resources required to manufacture products and goods and to absorb the waste that is generated. Simply put, we are using up our natural resources faster than they can be replenished, and if we don’t do something soon, there will be consequences. In addition to governments and finance, businesses and industry must play a key role in supporting the SDGs. At Belimed, we believe that sustainable development is key for our economic growth, and at the same time will solve the challenges of...

An increasing number of our hospital projects are requesting corporate sustainability commitment at the design or tender stage (including examples of where equipment and solutions can benefit the environment). Another challenge is how to sell the value of energy-efficient equipment and sustainable solutions in a highly...
